Hello UNCG research community.  If you are looking for new funding opportunities, we have upcoming workshops and online tutorials just for you.

  1. “Show Me The Money” workshops:

This workshop will explore how to get the most from grant seeking databases, including SPIN, GrantSelect, Grant Advisor Plus, and the Foundation Center.  With the course offered in a UNCG computer lab, attendees will have the opportunity to access databases and engage in searches related to their topic of interest.
